Love him or loathe him, a new musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber is big news. And today, therefore, is a big news day

Stephen Ward (yes, that’s it’s rather mundane name) will premiere at the Aldwych Theatre on December 3 this year, and tickets go on sale as of today.

With music by Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton, who both worked on Sunset Boulevard with the good Lord, Stephen Ward tells the story of ‘the real victim of the Profumo Affair’, the society osteopath who introduced Profumo to Christine Keeler, was subsequently prosecuted for living off immoral earnings, and who killed himself with a drugs overdose on the last day of his trial.

To be directed by Richard Eyre, Stephen Ward is yet to be cast.

Event:  Stephen Ward
